    Default Hercules driving me nuts

    So we are having an issue with Hercules, he is ~8 months old and overall sore try good dog, the one real issue we have is that when we are home and want to sit on the couch and watch tv or just talk he won't stop barking and jumping and it becomes very annoying eventually. Any ideas? He's done this since he was a puppy

    Puppies are very energetic, well in my case with my EB puppy for short periods of time say 30min to 40Min max of him wanting to do something. What i would say is tire him out play with if you can, once hes tried out he will calm down, if hes anything like mine hew will go to sleep. Good luck!

    He is very much a puppy and needs a lot of attention and exercise.... walks or fetch in the yard, maybe sit on the floor and play with him. As Michael stated, they last about 30-40 mins and then will pass out.

    I would say that's it but my wife just took him for a 35 minute walk/ run and he came back and went back to barking his head off

    UGH! Is he responsive to your training at all or is he a hard case? Our girl was mouthy and it was a struggle getting er to not bark for the first two years of her life.... the next 7 yrs, well, we battled and I won sometimes

    Well he's kinda stubborn but I think the problem is when he was a puppy he got constant attention from everyone so now he expects that if we are in the room all eyes should be on him

    Well, yeah -- he is a Bulldog attention, velcro dog, stubborn. Have you tired to totally ignore him,,,, no looking at him, no words? Do you use 'Nothing in Life is Free' training with him?

    Give him a bone marrow. Bass does this almost every night when my husband is ready to settle down. I had to stop the marrow because it was bringing out his aggressive side…but that would distract him from anything…even the cat

    That's exactly what I do. I get the bone marrow bones that are cut lengthwise and he loves them!!
    It gives them a good snack and definitely tires them out.

    Every once and a while he will look up to make sure we are still there but other than that he's good for an hour or two.

    Give him a juicy bone. We have a BBQ place we visit and they sell beef bones for pets from their cooking, all safe. We eat there and buy a minimum of two packs of bones. When we give Canelo a bone it occupies him for hours, and days, lol.

    When Canelo was a puppy, we played lots of tug of war with ropes, it exhausted him quickly too. The bonus, we got a great arm work out, lol.

    Charlie is no different at eight months. Were lucky enough that he's not barking but he's non stop from the moment he wakes until he crashes....he is an attention whore, we've enabled it and its fun up to a certain point then it becomes overwhelming at times.

    Both my guys. From am to pm. We do 4 miles a day, not enough. I try to actively play games or mentally tire them out also, tug o war, basic training review, etc. if we don't keep them both going, they won't let us sleep past 4:30am. Well, one of them won't.
